In addition to the shortened timeline, this year’s Open also has two new workout types including Foundations and Equipment Free. Outside of the above, there have also been additional divisions added.
The two CrossFit Games veterans that went head-to-head at the CrossFit Open 21.1 announcement were Kari Pearce and Kristi Eramo O’Connell.

– A Dumbbell
